Re: Do you wear a life jacket?
You can do whatever you want...
But I wear my PFD with light and whistle when underway and I don it before I leave the dock. I take it off when in the cabin unless it is just a duck-in to get or check something and when at anchor (my swim ladder is always deployed while at anchor).
I always wear it when in my dink.
And anybody who sails with me in my boat follows the same rules.
